It is kind of a sad day in my house. Maybe I shouldn’t consider it sad, but instead think of it as a new chapter. You see, ever since I married my cute husband, we knew that two babies was our limit. So yesterday, I started the dreaded task of packing up our newborn/infant clothes. My little Molly is now seven months old and it’s time for me to start saying goodbye to those precious, tiny clothes.

With my girls only being 20 months apart, we’ve had our share of baby clothes in this house over the last 2 1/2 years. We’ve seen (and cleaned) a lot of messes in these little outfits. A lot of the clothes I can even tell you if it was a gift or something I bought on my own. Isn’t the old saying…”If these walls could talk..” Well if these tiny baby clothes could talk – wow, they would have some fun stories to tell! So many great memories.

Wanna hear the good news? One of my oldest friends that I’ve known since I was in the third grade just found out this week that she’s having a little girl. Good timing on her part because she just hit the baby clothes jackpot!
While I do plan on sharing most of my clothes with my friend, I’m also donating a lot of our baby clothes to a local women’s organization. They are in desperate need of donations and I feel giving back is the right thing to do. And call me crazy, but I’d rather give these baby clothes to a worthy cause for free than I would sell them at a garage sale for next to nothing.

While, I’m sad to see all of these little clothes going off to a new home, it is exciting knowing that some other precious baby is going to be making their own memories in them too! And yes, I did keep a few of my “favorites”. (Wouldn’t you?!)
So spill the beans…what do you do with your old baby clothes? Garage sale? Donate them to a special organization? And the real question…how many of them do you still have as a keepsake?! Tell me..
